Here's some of my favs from this site:

5/1/1970 - I'd put this one up against Dick's Picks 8 any day. Just a day earlier, some really unique harmonies on the early renditions of Bobby's cowboy tunes are a highlight for me believe it or not.

9/20/1970 - Probably this is my all around favorite acoustic set of all time. David Grisman sits in as well as David Nelson on various songs. The acoustic Truckin' is a rarity and is fantastic, and the version of Big Railroad Blues is probably the best I've ever heard.

11/17/1978 - A short but totally unique acoustic set, perhaps not as polished as the acoustic shows of a couple years later, but for sure just as much fun and a great setlist. I love the banter between songs on this recording.

BTW, JGB, that's Marmaduke adding the harmonies, which is what makes M&MU and MTried so special in these May/June shows...DNelson sits in as well on many, as you note, generally on mandolin on the gospel tunes...

They reffered to the Dead/Riderw hybrid as "Bobby Ace and his Caards off the Bottom." These tunes were left off of DP 8. Several gems.
